Some ordered the Angus steak, some the beef tenderloin, others the paella, some the seafood platter and I had the lobster rice.

Have been coming to Opium regularly for about 5 years and always loved it. But won't be returning after this visit, Very unfriendly reception and staff all round (used to be the opposite). Waited 35 mins for a drink then another 30 mins for food much of which was not as ordered and cold. Not a hint of an apology.... More

We went to this club late after a meal out. It costs EURO 10 to get in and as typical with a club the drinks are quite expensive. Anyway, we had a good time. DJ plays the usual dance grooves and there's an outside smoking area, which is good to go to if you want to chat.

Fabulous 3 course set menu lunch for two 14€ per person. Food came out looking like a fine dining plate. The presentation was way above expectation and the taste was even better! Jacopo and the team were attentive and friendly. And all this whilst overlooking the beach. I would HIGHLY recommend!

A nice looking restaurant/bar/club but same timme a bit clinical. The staff was not so friendly. The dirnks are good, their cigars unfortunatelly old and dry. The prices too hgh for the service and quality. Pity!

We stumbled across this restaurant just at the right time for lunch before they stopped the set menu (1pm). The menu had a good selection for each course and included one drink and all for 16 euros. The service was very good, professional but friendly and the food did not disappoint. We would definitely recommend Opium.

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
